I was working as a caterer and they didnt technically

Hi so i was working as a caterer and they didnt technically "terminate me" but they did block my account and stopped me from getting any more job offers because they red flagged me and the reason was that i talked too much to guests, and said a joke to a chef. They canceled my jobs for those two reasons, and they know i'm bipolar, and part of my illness is having a hard time to stop talking, but if a guest came up to me and started talking to me i wasn't going to be like "okay bye" i was being polite. Is this a good reason to get a consultation, because i think its highly unfair that they stopped offering me jobs because i talked a little too much but thats part of my mental illness.

I was working for a company for 3 years making $12hr. Never

I was working for a company for 3 years making $12hr. Never got a raise or evaluation. During my last year there I asked about the evaluation and was told I should have been included in the evaluation. They included me in the evaluation and I got a raise $12.24. Well went they let me go due to my position being faded out they gave me a servants package $1968. It was to include my last week of employment. Myou last day of employment was Aug 26, 2016. The problem I'm having is I feel like they should have compensated me for the years they over looked me for an evaluation due to their fault. Also the $1968 I got I didn't get a breakdown of how they came about with that figure and it included my work pay.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: IllinoisJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: Part time and I signed the agreement but I had no choice because my rent was due in a few days.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

I have been employed with my agency for 5 years and during

I have been employed with my agency for 5 years and during my tenure in the office that I am currently working I have not been promoted. The position that I started with had promotion potential to a GS 13 and after years of not being promoted under my previous supervisor, I transferred to another unit within the office, a position that I feel was menial in nature in hopes of having a better chance of getting promoting. I have worked with this unit for two years now and I still have not been promoted. I have received an outstanding performance appraisal and performance award when I first began and after I returned from maternity leave in April 2012, I have not been promoted and I have received satisfactory performance ratings. When I moved to my new unit, my position changed and my promotion potential dropped from a GS 13 to a GS 12; however, I still have not been promoted and I am still a GS 7, the grade I was when I started. I don't know if i have a strong case, but I do feel that there are some concerns about not being promoted in 5 years and I do not have any documentation provided by the managers that would justify not being promoted.

I have just been denied my appeal. I'm not sure what has

I have just been denied my appeal. I'm not sure what has gone wrong for this to happen as I was unjustly let go. It is a long story but the supervisor (newly assigned) had it out for me. I was told I would receive unemployment, no problem by the employer, plus received a severance. The reasonable person in the office, the president come to find out has not seen any unemployment paperwork and in fact, the lady who had it out for me is fighting back. I believe this to be true anyway. I have been taken advantage of and feel that unemployment is now uninformed by them.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: OhioJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: At will fulltimeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't think so.

I have pornographic fliers that have my personal information

I have pornographic fliers that have my personal information on it and advertise me as a prostitute, that were created by a co-worker and distributed all over the college town where I live by a number of co-workers. I also have PTSD and asked my employer for a reasonable accommodation so I wouldn't have to see the co-workers who I was very afraid of, and it was not granted. What kind of attorney should I look for in a situation like this. I also believe the hooker flier may have been sent to a potential employer where I had interviewed. I also believe that management knew about this and covered it up. I will get the full story tomorrow, but in the mean time, attorneys who specialize in what - should I be looking for?

Can an ex-employee sue a supervisor within my company

Hello,Can an ex-employee sue a supervisor within my company *individually* instead of just naming the company itself? We have insurance like D&O, general liability, etc. But one of my supervisors expressed some worries that he may be "individually" sued by en ex-employee for wrongful termination.I'm just wondering how this would even work, or whether my insurance would cover something like this. If they sue my supervisor directly (and not my company), then is that even possible in the capacity of the company?

I have 2 jobs. 1st job is a 10 year medical career. 2nd job

I have 2 jobs. 1st job is a 10 year medical career. 2nd job is a supplement for income. This is pertaining to both jobs but instigated by my 2nd supplemental job. The bosses estranged wife has instructed two of my coworkers to steal medical documents from me and report a false complaint against me through HIPPA in order to remove me from her husbands business. Reasons are still unclear but I have my suspicions. Now because of their actions I am now in the midst of losing everything that i have worked so hard for. Do I have any recourse if I lose my career of 10 years due to these vicious people?
